Dai Nippon – Kabuki Prints from the Henry Dyer Collection

Dai Nippon

Last Friday saw the launch of the Dai Nippon exhibition at Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Gallery. The exhibition, curated by Vanessa Tothill, runs until Saturday 10 October 2009.  View more pictures from the launch on our flickr page.

Dai Nippon (Great Japan) reunites a series of original late Edo-period Japanese Kabuki woodblock prints from the Henry Dyer Collection, a bequest shared between Edinburgh and Glasgow City Libraries.

In connection with this exhibition, reproduction prints inspired by The Tale of Genji will be on  display at Edinburgh Central Library from 31 August – 10 October 2009, together with a programme of associated events.

You can view images from the Henry Dyer Collection for yourself on the Capital Collections image gallery.
